Sun Care Is Self-Care: Au Revoir to Sun Damage

Greetings, you gorgeous goddesses! Today, I want to talk about sun care. Once you pass 50, it's one of the most critical aspects of self-care. Sure, we love the sun! The world seems happier when it's bright outside, but those wretched UV rays are just waiting to do damage to your skin and hair. Here are some of the most foolproof methods for keeping yourself safe from free radicals, UV rays, and sunburns:

Slip into light-blocking clothing: tightly woven tops and bottoms effectively block out UV rays, preventing them from doing damage straight through your clothes.

Slather on your sunscreen: no matter how long you're going to be outside, and even if it's cloudy, put on sunscreen—and don't forget to cover the tops of your hands to avoid sun damage on that soft, fragile skin.

Put a lid on it: wearing a hat outside protects your hair from drying out or fading—the sun can bleach out all your color, you know—and it shades your eyes from those bright, potentially dangerous rays. Accessorize with a Blue Sky Sun Visor, for example, allows you to rock a sporty athleisure aesthetic while giving yourself some shade.

Pop on your sunglasses: even when you wear a hat, sunglasses are smart, as they simultaneously shield your eyes from the sun and they protect the delicate skin around your pretty peepers.

Sun damage is no joke. At best, it dries out your skin and hair, plus sunburns can cause irreparable harm. At worst, you run the risk of skin cancer. Check out The Shop to discover useful sun-blocking products, such as Blue Sky Sun Visors, and don't forget to avoid the sun's peak hours!
